1999 Toyota Sienna XLE 4dr Minivan
Just had 10 year anniversary. Soccer mom. Purchased new. Has been a dream vehicle. Now have 135,000 miles. Drives like luxury vehicle. Has been extremely reliable. Have just needed reg. maintenance, i.e oil changes regularly, 18 month brake jobs, (heavy city travel). On 3rd set of Michelin tires, on 3rd battery. Had to replace motor for power window and an alternator. Am now having timing belt, water pump, and ac and ps belts changed for first time which is normal maintenance. Now in its 10th plus year, starting to have a few issues. Valve gaskets are now leaking oil and need replacement. Repair described is approx. $1000 for belts, wp, and new gaskets with labor. Heavily recommend vehicle.
Styling (nicer then present revised style) - reliability - smooth, great ride, better than most cars - tire light lets you know if low on air - powerful engine, easy to go 85 and not feel it, as we have on trips - Use reg gas, (have read others using higher octane, but don't find it necessary).
